Beverley’s ‘founding father’ St John of Beverley died 1300 years ago – in AD 721. The town as we know it today would not exist without St John, and so we celebrate this – Beverley’s big birthday year – with a vibrant festival.
Running from Friday 22nd October – Monday 25th October 2021, the festival encompasses ideas, events, community, family, talks, film, real ale, & more. We are thrilled to unveil the programme for the long weekend:
Events take place in Beverley’s independent cinema, Parkway Cinema, and in the town’s two great medieval churches, The Minster & St Mary’s. But on the Saturday of the festival, doors are flung open at heritage sites across the entire town centre – from the North Bar to the Beck for our mini-pilgrimage trail:
We hope that you enjoy browsing the array of events on offer and we cannot wait to welcome you to the festival later this month.
